Open Legislation - BC Laws API

In support of the British Columbia government's Open Data Policy, the new BC Laws delivers expanded content and open access to the data published on the site. All documents on BC Laws are now published under a permissible licence, which allows commercial and non-commercial access to, and use of, the legislative materials on the site (please check the licence as some restrictions apply).

The King's Printer is also releasing access to the API (Application Programming Interface) that BC Laws is built on. This creates opportunities for citizen-led technical innovation and allows for richer interaction with the data. See information on what an API is and technical documentation on its use.
